Top performing schools in Victoria: How did metro stack up against their rural counterparts

The Good Schools Guide recently published an article documenting the top five schools in Victoria according to the percentage of students with a study score over 40. However, with only one rural school (Ballarat Clarendon College) featuring on the list, it was difficult to grasp how students in regional areas were performing on a broader scale. 

As a result, The Good Schools Guide has compiled two separate tables; one covering the top performing schools in Victoria classified as metropolitan and the other containing the best of the rural schools. 

Naturally, results were stronger in the more densely populated Melbourne area, but there were still some promising scores from their regional counterparts, especially in some remote parts of the state. Murrayville Community College, for example, is located 500 kilometres from Melbourne and more than 260 kilometres from Adelaide yet was the second best performed school in rural Victoria with 21 per cent of students scoring 40+.
